Our 2nd trip to Aurum in 1 week. This was due to the fact that the food was amazing our first time. The Parmesan fries are exceptional. The 1/2 chicken with polenta, beet salad, strawberry salad were all excellent. We had the added benefit of watching someone kayak down the Yampa River followed by rain, sleet, snow and GIANT snowflakes all during our 90 minute dinner. A lovely experience and would go again in a heartbeat.

Way way too expensive for what we received, the food was simply OK, nothing special here. We got a lot better meals for half the price at numerous places in steamboat. Do not recommend.

Amazing experience. Wait staff attentive and professional. Meal was outstanding. From NYC so didnt have high expectations, but this place was phenomenal. Kids portions were VERY generous. Outstanding wine selection. Husband and son devoured the tomahawk steak and farm to table roasted veggies. Dinosaur Kale salad delicious as was Bass entree. Scrumptious desserts. A+++. Would not miss a chance to dine here.

It was nice, food was very good. Had a crying child next to us, in an already loud dining room, made it hard to hear our waiter and had to speak up to converse.

We enjoyed our dinner very much. A beautiful space with excellent service. The seared cauliflower appetizer was amazing! The elk shoulder (they were out of the filet) was not perfect, as the boneskin was left on, and their steak knives were not serrated! Makes it hard to carve your own meat without a carving knife. Still, I highly recommend for a beautiful romantic meal in a wonderful setting.

Service was slow. We arrived for our reservation about 30 minutes early. Even though there were empty tables we did get seated until our reservation time. Waitress was very slow and inattentive. She only had 3 tables but appeared to be in the weeds the entire time. It's was incredibly noisey. Could barely hear the conversation at the table. On the high side, the entrees were very tasty. Entertainment was also very good. Watch out for the uncharge for ice. $2.50 for a large rock ice cube as opposed to the "bar ice". Over all, with the number resturants in the area, I doubt we will go back

perfect Steamboat family meal. The 'cauliflower' and 'duck wing' appetizers were a hit. I ordered the rainbow trout for my main course and really liked the meal. Our family was very pleased with this restaurant and would recommend it to anyone looking for a good experience in Steamboat Springs, CO!

This place was highly recommended to us and the food and ambiance was great but the service was lacking to say the least and that distracted from the overall experience. I would probably go back but for happy hour and sit in the bar.

Nice setting with the Yampa river drifting by and beautiful views (including of Howelson Hill ski jumps). Understated and lovely decor accented delicious and beautifully presented food. Crispy brussel sprouts in balsamic and curried cauliflower were great starters. Group ate a range of food, from beet salad (which got raves) and crab cakes, burger (good but not remarkable), elk (outstanding), and duck (delicious and cooked perfectly). The dessert biscotti with vanilla and chocolate dipping sauces got the thumbs up from a chocolate and dessert connoisseur. Lovely evening with the best dinner we had in Steamboat.

We caught the end of happy hour which made it more economical. Crispy duck wings were delicious and fun to try something different from chicken wings. The other appetizer was ribs and was also delicious with a nice amount of spice. The waiter was attentive and sommelier knew her wines and we got a nice bottle for a reasonable price.

We had another wonderful experience at Aurum. Aurum ranks among some the best restaurants I've in which I've had the pleasure of dining. And when one of out party was not pleased with the braised short rib, the owner was very quick to respond. That was the only hiccup the entire night. Besides, we had salmon, filet, striped bass and crab cakes. Each of those dishes was wonderful

Our 2 servers (Ivan and Lee) were excellent and the riverside location was great. We loved watching the skiers on Howelson Hill. If it wasn’t so cold, we would have loved to enjoy the outdoor fire pit. However, our meals were all meh. (We had strawberry arugula salad, burgers and waygu beef.) And except for the happy hour menu there are no values to be had as there is barely anything under $50 on the menu. We would not return or recommend.

Upon arriving no hostess for quite some time (confusion at the front of the restaurant), hostess was kind but called us by a different party after we had met and continued to tell us the table would be ready, sat at table 15-20 minutes late for our reservation, waitress did not bring bread to table until we asked multiple times, bread came with the meal, dinner was expensive and food was average, our appetizers were totally forgot until we reminded them during the middle of our dinner, the wine was poured into a decanter but never poured into the glasses...overall poor service (nice people but not at all on their game) and food certainly not commiserate with the price point. Very disappointed given the feedback I heard...hope it was just an off night.

A very good meal. Not to heavy, balanced but with some unusual combinations like the elk with Stilton, greens and blackberries. The dessert was disappointing: a soupy chocolate mousse.

Food this time was not as good as we have had in the past. My nachos were unflavorful, and had few ingredients compared to most. The duck breast was dry and fatty. The beet salad was fairly good, but could have been better with fewer greens and more beets.
We'll try Aurum again sometime and hope for a better experience.

We've been to Aurum a couple times this winter season and have had terrific experiences. Service, food, ambiance all make for a lovely evening. It was particularly great seeing the fireworks from our table during Winter Carnival. A must try for foodies and diners who enjoy fine dining with service that appreciates your patronage.

Amazing food! Expensive but very normal for the area and quality. I only gave 4 stars because dinner for two was $150 with one drink each and an app. Again not too bad for the area but a little pricey. They were nice enough to also get us in early since we got into town sooner than anticipated. Not a very good beer selection but the wine I had was good.
